Carlsbad, CA – November 7, 2018 – LocationSmartⓇ, the world’s largest Location-as-a-Service (LaaS) company, announced today the expansion of its platform’s services to Canada. These services include LocationSmart’s secure carrier network location, short message service (SMS), consent management and other geo-contextual services. With this expansion, LocationSmart adds consent-based access for over 90 percent of Canada’s mobile subscribers via its patented platform.
Canadian network location and SMS services are available for all major wireless carriers and many of their sub-brands. After obtaining the appropriate consent from subscribers, businesses are able to locate Canadian mobile devices in real time without the requirement of software installations or app downloads. The LocationSmart platform features carrier-grade security and comprehensive privacy controls for user consent management to ensure the location information is trusted and secure. All device types with cellular connections are locatable – smartphone, feature phone, tablets, M2M/IoT, etc. – and the service boosts operational efficiencies and improves customer experience. Accessing real-time location information is critical for a variety of use cases including asset and load tracking, workforce management, toll-free call routing, gaming compliance, transaction verification and roadside assistance, among many others.
“This expansion of our services paves the way to an abundance of new opportunities for our customers to provide a wide range of useful services to their mobile users in Canada,” said Mario Proietti, CEO of LocationSmart. “These new services along with other steps in our international expansion enable us to better support our customers as they explore new markets and business relationships.”
